This is not a post to highlight the life and times of Steve jobs . A blogpost can’t do justice to that . This is a tribute . A post to bid adieu . To say goodbye . One last time .
No matter what anyone says , there is one indisputable fact . He was one of the greatest creative geniuses of recent times . His visions for the phones of the future , nobody else had .
When the iPhone first came out , it was an instant hit for a reason . And it was not because of the brand name of apple but because of the fact that it took phone technology and useability to a level nobody anticipated . With every new iPhone , the cellphone evolution process becomes a revolution process.
Today cloud computing has become a domestic reality through iCloud . In 1997 , Steve jobs had spoken about something exactly like it . 14 years ago , a dream . Today a reality that helps millions of apple users protect their data from crashes . Dreamer ? No . Visionary .
I still can’t digest the fact that he is gone . For the past week , I have been in total shock , as have been other steve jobs admirers . 5th of October . A day when the world lost the apple of it’s eye .
Steve jobs . You will be missed . A lot of tributes from a lot of people have poured in for him . If apple called the new iPhone , 4S meaning iPhone 4 Steve , it is the best tribute of them all . No doubt . And like president Obama said ” There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented” .
Thank you Steve , for being an inspiration , a mentor . This post is for you , wherever you are . And as a tribute , I make this post from my iPod touch . Yes I am making a blogpost from my portable music player . Need I say more ?
